Andrew Bone covered the recruiting aspect of Saturday's A-Day game, and boy did we really hit some good ones. Dre Kirkpatrick was overwhelmed by fans, as were a lot of the incoming players. They definitely took it as a good thing.
The best thing about the way the schedule fell this year was that we still had one practice after the A-Day game, which was perfect. The guys got to see what they did wrong during the game, and work to make it perfect. Yesterday's practice, needless to say, was very productive.
Paul Finebaum has Alabama going 8-4 next season, which would be fine with me. This team will be very young, but the talent's going to be there. We've just got some damn tough road games this year, including a neutral site game against a top 10 team. Yikes.
Ian Rapoport is like the little kid that just keeps asking over and over "are we there yet? are we there yet? are we there yet?" It gets annoying, but you can't help but laugh a little bit. Haha. Read up on his last scolding from Coach until the season.
Scarbinsky weighs in on the changes that Coach Saban is seeing from year one to year two so far. It's definitely a good thing, but we're still not where we want to be just yet. Patience, my friends, is a virtue.
Finebaum's article today basically gives Tide fans a pat on the back and "Good job, guys" for filling up BDS again this past Saturday. Yes, we get it, and he finally sees that. We're not just rabid. We just know what it takes to win - good football players. And anything we can do to help recruiting, we're gonna do that. Read more here.
